Government has been putting great emphasis on improving productivity and its internal processes, increased transparency in the decision making and bring in citizen participation as part of the inclusive governance in the country. Governance processes are based around creation of files, noting in the file, decision at various levels, and finally issuing decisions as letters and notifications. Any request to the Government goes through an elaborate processing of different stages called workflow. Most of these processes are handled in the form of files which move forward and backward for decisions. An automation of these files can play a very crucial role both in improving the efficiency of decision making and also in building transparency in governance.
